I’ve always been an over thinker. And when a certain series of unfortunate events occurred, I went into an over drive of over thinking. Has it helped me in any way? Not at all. I’ve lost a couple of pounds, gone anti social, and some days I feel like there will be no end to the constant chit chatter of negativity in my head.
It is interesting how much power we give to our mind.How we let it reign free, and imagine scenarios in our head when things actually aren’t that bad at all.
Picture this. You have a long distance boyfriend. And sometimes, when he doesn’t reply, you imagine the worst scenarios in your head. The truth maybe something as simple as he might be honestly busy, but when the mind reigns free, the thoughts we have can get twisted and in the end, the only person who loses is you.
Lately, I have been trying to control these negative thoughts. When a negative thought pops up, I try and negate it with rationality. It is hard, but I do feel more at ease. My problems still exist, but at least I have some control over how I let these emotions wreck havoc, and make things worse.
How do you deal with negative thoughts?
